No, that video was taken from an event back in 2011 iirc, even though the upload date is more recent.

I doubt anything is happening, this is an old fan-made video and it's probably just a Warp employee reposting it. I suggest people stop getting excited at anything their social media posts or likes unless it's an actual announcement or message.

Why not? Half the fun of being a boards fan is finding meaning in their obscurity.

Because there is nothing to find in their social media presence. This isn't any announcement or ARG. It's quite unlikely that it's even them doing these posts, they probably hate social media so it's hard to see them doing this random promotional stuff when a Warp employee could just as easily do it all for them like they probably do every other artist.

Right, but it's only the second time that they've posted to that instagram account. If it's just a Warp social media manager what's the point?

Yeah and the first post was just a Warp 30 promotional video which was also posted on their twitter, so it's not like there was any special reason to posting on Instagram other than expanding the social media presence for promoting releases or events and interacting with fans.

Makes sense to me that they start using Instagram instead of Twitter for sharing fanmade videos. IG fits more for that kind of content. Twitter is less about music than IG is.
We'll see if this leads to more interesting things in the future but it sure is a good sign. If they bother trying to make the IG page gain momentum, it might mean that it'll be used for announcing stuff one day.

Meanwhile at Warp headquarters: "Damn it Dave! Did you just put up another fanvid on BoCs account again?" Dave: (insert Trollface meme).

Yeah, I'm pretty sure this has got to mean something. They never make "their own" posts like this, plus it would have taken a decent amount of effort to download the video onto a phone and upload it. I don't see this being some random post after a year of more radio silence. If it is, that's massively annoying. I don't really care about fan-made music videos.

Just viewing BoC’s youtube page, they are very obviously appreciative of fan made music videos. I see this as them showing their appreciation to the fans as usual. Only thing different this time around is the platform they are sharing it on
Long story short: Nothing to see here folks.

What do you make of them liking posts that mention new albums? Is that a Warp employee too?

Honestly, I think it would be messed up if a Warp employee was liking posts mentioning a new album if BOC had no intention of actually making a new album.

There’s no doubt that they are making a new record, only question is WHEN? Imo the likes only hint that something is in the works, but nothing is guaranteed to be happening remotely soon.

I certainly hope to eat those words soon enough though!

There should be a release within the next year.. not only myself but a fellow twoismer remembers an interview or a comment from either mdg or the brothers themselves that the wait for a new album after TH would be less than the wait between TCH and TH. So 8 years or less. We are on year 7..

But yeah probably not

I guess one thing to consider is that they used several forms of media to promote TH. While likes and posts may not mean anything themselves, the fact that they are more active could be a precursor to another promotional campaign.
